Tomorrow Mourning: An Archive of Disabled Grief

Share

Eligibility:

Tomorrow Mourning: An Archive of Disabled Grief is calling for submissions for a digital archive, zine and ongoing art project centering disabled grief. As disabled people/people with chronic pain or illnesses, we often confront feelings of loss relative to our changing bodies, capacities, and the uncertainties surrounding them. Our grief is wild and multifaceted, for the vestiges that make-up our multiple identities, and the material objects that embody them- Objects that bring us solace, couch our mourning, fill our days, or offer us a temporary out from the trauma of medicalization, objects that, for one reason or another, our disabled bodies cannot always interact with in the ways we may have done/wanted to continue doing.

...

We would like to create a homage to disabled grief, in all its messy, wilting, abounding, aching glory; collective crip combinations of mourning and celebration, taken back from the abled gaze.

...

We invite all disabled folks interested to contribute objects symbolizing what disabled grief means – to them. This could be related to a hobby/interest, phase of life, a mobility aid, and so on. Maybe your wrist gave out, and knitting is no longer on the table? Show (or send) us your needles. Maybe you displaced one joint too many and your roller derby days are over? We want to see your skates. 

...

Folks interested are welcome to send physical objects (by post, spoon permitting and if safe to do so), pictures/photographs or other art forms and representations (whether by post or digitally). You are welcome to send pictures/objects/other submissions as stand-alones, or to include some text telling us about yourself (and your disability, if desired), your chosen object, and what it means to you. You can indicate in your submission whether you want your submission archived as is or used in an art piece, made by @fierce_invalids, that will be the keystone of the collection. You can submit work or find out more at the application form

Curator - Aidan Cowling (CANADA)

In a short amount of time, the Internet and digital technologies have dramatically  changed the way we live our lives, and we are beginning to register and quantify how  our daily contact with the digital world has altered the archive. How is technology being  mobilized today to preserve and present archive and history? This residency invites 

participants to experience ANIMA Casa Rural through the lens of the archive, and  consider how can the historical archive be used to find a way forward and makes sense  of today. 

Throughout the residency we will visit The National Archives of Mexico, Archivo de  Instrumentos Públicos, Archivo del Arzobispado de Guadalajara, Archivo General de  Notarías del Estado de Jalisco, and various archives in the surrounding area. Studio  visits with archivists and local artists, will give participants the opportunity to explore  these archives and further their own research. This residency will develop terms for  working in the archive, and explore examples from contemporary practices that we can  deployed when engaging with archival materials. Workshops on the farm will consider  different ways of digitizing the archive, as well as explore experimental ways that the  archive can be used in your artistic practice like digital editing, green screen,  performance and installation. Participants are encouraged to apply to this residency with  a particular theme or focus they wish to research in the archives.

Br(o)adcast open call for Dreamcatcher

Share

Theme:

Eligibility:

Br(o)adcast is a brand new Bradford based participatory audio platform. Dreamcatcher is an ongoing podcast/ archive collecting dreams from the people across Bradford and Craven, using this time of uncertainty as a chance to connect and record people’s emotional response.

Do you live or work in/around Bradford? Have you been having some extremely odd dreams lately?

Br(o)adcast is looking to compile a community and location specific response to the current climate. 

You dont have to be an artist or writer to submit, Dreamcatcher is about collecting a shared emotional response to a pandemic. The dreams can be wakeful or sleeping, related to Covid-19 or completely unconnected.

Use your phone, a dictaphone, your PC or any other equipment you have to  tell us about one of your recent dreams, maybe one that keeps occurring, or a new and obtuse one. Then send it to us via sound file. If this is difficult please get in touch and we will be able to work around the issues. Or, send me a message and you can leave a voicenote over whatsapp. 

The only requirement is that the dream is a vivid, lasting memory and that you feel comfortable sharing it. 

If you do not feel comfortable recording your voice, but want to share, please send us a message and we can arrange for your submission to be written and then recorded by myself or a person of your choosing.

If you have additional access requirements, please get in touch and we can adapt the submission. 

This project is in collaboration with Leeds based collective Creative Frame you can find out more about us here...

Funded by Bradford City Council Response.

This is an ongoing project and we may look for visual and installation based repsonses in the future. This project aims to bring together a sense of community and start conversations. This idea takes inspiration from the Neptune Archives and their Covid-19 project.
